Can you tell if these close-ups are the Walton children or the von Trapp children?

Are those baby blues John-Boy's or Liesl's? You tell us!

When you think of famous families with boatloads of kids, you can immediately call a few names to mind. The two that pop into ours – the Waltons and the von Trapps. Both families were affected in their own ways by World War II, and both with enough kids to open a small business. It's hard not to love both of these clans when you think of little Elizabeth or tiny Gretl. 

We pulled some close-up clips of these two groups of kids, and we're curious to see if you can tell the difference between them.

Can you I.D. these pictures as the Waltons or the von Trapps? Give it your best try!

You can tell these kids apart from a mile (or a few inches) away! Nicely done! I missed the elbow.

8/10! Why did METV not identify who was who in the answer section? I kinda went by visual texture since Sound Of Music was widescreen and Waltons were old TV boxed!
